Google just launched its website dedicated to the upcoming Google TV. Give it a test and see if you like it. The Google TV website underlines the main features of the upcoming Google TV set top box: Google Chrome browser supporting Adobe Flash 10.1. A lot of applications supported including Netflix, Twitter, CNBC, Pandora, Napster, NBA Game Time and Amazon Video On Demand, and, most important news: starting soon (early next year) apps from Android Market will be compatible with Google TV as well – isn’t that nice??? I wonder if we’ll be able at some point to stream video from network shares around the house or maybe a DLNA client?
Google TV will also be able to be remotely controlled by applications available on iPhone or Android devices and can be inserted between your cable / satellite box and TV overlying its own image over the default TV programs so you can watch TV and do Web surfing at the same time. Google TV will be launched from several partners including Logitech (Oct 6th) and Sony(Oct 12th) but the initial price will be quite high considering the premium category the above mentioned companies are placing their products. However, being able to use Android Market apps on your TV might very well worth it. And since Google owns YouTube, you can certainly expect a first class implementation in full HD splendor.
Check here soon for a review.
